Forum: feature_films Subject: The Dawn Express (1942) should be removed, I think.

This film is in Feature Films:
http://www.archive.org/details/TheDawnExpress

As billsbarstad's January 2010 review of this film states, it is definitely "unwatchable." Well, it's actually definitely unlistenable because of fatal sound issues. It's not just out of sync, it's also alternately garbled then silent throughout the movie.

Maybe someone out there has a better copy. On the other hand it may be as good as it gets.

For any out-of-sync problems, I suggest watching in VLC Player. In the effects settings, there is a sync tab which allows you to easily put the audio/video back into alignment.

Of course, it won't solve the silent/garbled issues people are complaining of.

I second that. No one will be able enjoy the film on that page unless they turn off the audio and can read lips.
